    so, how you boys handeling the heat and humidity? sent my 22 yr old helper home yesterday after only a few hrs, thought he was goin to die. i went out alone afterwards and did 3 more. yup, this stuff separates the men from the boys. you know, this heat can make u halucinate. i went back 30 years, thought i heard my grandma callin me, "robby, time for dinner." "im comin grandma" , then i thought i was a knight, and just slayed a draggon, but found out, i ran over a weeping norway spruce. the heat does weird thingas to the brain, especially when you know u had enough, but keep goin anyway. how u guys handlin it?

    We just drink a lot and dont push ourselves. I eat salty stuff to keep moisture in. Those new Chicago steakhouse chips from
    Lays are awesome with jagged ice Powerade ! The color in the powerade made it all the way through me though. Bad tummy ache too.

    I got a 2002 2500HD SILVERADO AND NNOOOOOOOOOOOO AC (yes I'm screaming)

    ....but I still love the truck :)

    The humidity and heat was bad today.
    The part that kills me the most is pushing the 21"

    But the good news is that my 36" tthp will arrive monday :)

    Well i have a 2002 Dodge2500 and the AC does work only on the way back to the shop. Getting in and out of the AC will make you not wont to go back to work.
